  • Before I go into what I thought of this episode, can we please address the fact that their HQ is on a plane? For some reason I never actually clued into this. I figured at some point they would be hanging about SHIELD headquarters, but no, this episode confirms that they live on a freaking plane. And it's a terrible idea.

  • I am sitting here in my little office still recovering from <a href="http://www.geekgirlcon.com/" target="_blank">GeekGirlCon</a>. This year, which is the convention's third year, was again at the Conference Centre across the street from Washington State Convention Centre in downtown Seattle. Once again, the show was expertly run. Not too many crowds. Volunteers were everywhere and always helpful. If you don't like cons because they are just too crowded and unruly, GeekGirlCon is a breath of fresh air

  • Honestly, I don't know what I can say about <em>Gravity</em> that hasn't already. From James Cameron to Buzz Aldrin- all have heaped praise on <em>Gravity</em>, and for good reason. This is a spectacular film.

  • Hello! What's going on with you? Things are good here. I'm still coming down from the amazing piece of television that was the finale of <em>Breaking Bad</em>, and once again lamenting that I couldn't justify reviewing it for this site. The show that I am reviewing of course is <em>Agents of SHIELD</em> which had a very disappointing second episode.
